TOPICS


Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms


COMMENT

My legal career has roughly spanned the life of the Charter, and I have been involved with several Charter cases, two of them successful - one to the Supreme Court of Canada [Ramsden v. Peterborough (City) (SCC, 1993)]. Canada is blessed with an 'active' constitution, primarily in the form of the Charter but also in it's Constitution (non-Charter) form (typically in the 'division of powers' doctrine).

SS NOTE

*** Check the Constitution Act, 1982 for the limits of the Charter, it only goes to s.34, the balance are new generic provisions - including s.52. You need to restructure this post s.34 stuff to 'non-Charter'.
